Assembly parameter not available in part

Assembly parameter not available in part

Assembly parameter not available in part

I want to use the same parameter to rule several parts of the same assembly.

I have created a lenght.1 parameter in my product assembly root, but this parameter is not available in the sketcher.

In the formula editor, if i link a sketch dimension by clicking to lenght.1 in the root it only reproduces the lenght.1 numerical value but isnt synchronized.

Anyone knows?

RE: Assembly parameter not available in part

Have you tried setting the Tools-Options-Infrastructure-Part Infrastructure-Keepl link with selected object option?
While you're there, deselct the Only use published elements... option or publish the assembly parameter.

Best regards

RE: Assembly parameter not available in part


You need to drive the parameter of sketch from assembly.

You have a parameter Lenght.1 in assembly level
Create a relation that drives sketch lenght to assembly level (not inside a part).

L Part1
|  L PartBody
|      L Sketch.1
L Parameters
|  L Length.1
L Relations
   L Part1/PartBody/Sketch.1/Lenght.1=Lenght.1
